The new trackpad-equipped BlackBerry Curve 8520 is said to offer consumers access to entertainment wherever they are.

It comes equipped with features such as email, messaging (IM, SMS, MMS) Facebook, MySpace and a full qwerty keyboard, and is available in the UK via Vodafone.

The phone is controlled by a laptop-style trackpad, with dedicated media keys giving users easy access to their music and videos.

This, according to manufacturer Research in Motion, makes it "incredibly approachable" as ideal for "entertainment on the go".

For those who want to stay connected, the phone also includes built in wireless, quad-band support, Bluetooth, voice dialling and a two megapixel camera.

The handset currently supports cards up to 16 GB, and is expected to accept next generation 32 GB cards when they become available.

Other BlackBerry devices available from Vodafone include the touchscreen-equipped Storm and the Bold 9000 - which also carries a full qwerty keypad.
